From the Paper:"Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria? asks Beverly Daniel Tatum, Ph.D. as the title of her book. By choosing such a frank title, she sets the tone for the rest of her work. Through the choice of her title she indicates that she is willing to talk frankly about race and how it relates to American education. She indicates she will speak in the voice not of a professor, but of the individuals whom she has studied. Throughout the text, she will speak as an educator, a mother, and an African-American female living in a white society as well as a researcher."
